I've been blogging for 3 years, and did you know that it just hit me today after reading the rules/instructions for participating in this hop that not everybody can follow another blogger through GFC. I honestly had never thought about that! I promise I'm a halfway intelligent person :/
Anyhoo, I signed up for the little Blogger Network follow thingamajigie and posted it in my sidebar...it kinda looks funny there right now...er, with only little me following my little self, ahem. :)
This week's question is
Q: Happy Father’s Day! Who is your favorite dad character in a book and why?
I read a lot of different stuff...from vampire hunters to classics...but the best Father in all the books/series I've ever read is Father Tim from Jan Karon's best selling Mitford series. Now, don't smirk. I'm a very tightly wound kind of woman who has more than a full plate of responsibilities (like most of us). I have to constantly battle to keep my emotions in tact, stay organized and not get overwhelmed. Father Tim is just the opposite. He's peaceful, he's trustworthy, he takes in strays (boys and dogs), and he loves others just as they are...but in a believable way, not an unrealistic holier than thou way. Does that make sense? He's also not perfect but never pretends to be.
Just an all around older guy who enjoys life and encourages those around him to do the same.
This is where you can find Father Tim:
And, this is what I think he looks like:
